Question about Microsoft Windows XP Professional With Servise Pack 2 (e8503040) for PC

1 Answer

Windows XP freezes with any network type enabled

I have had this problem on my laptop. It is a fresh copy of Windows XP w/ sp2. I loaded no drivers onto it, installed nothing but zone alarm suite. I plug in the Ethernet to do windows update. SP3 being the first one. Installed it, rebooted. Now whenever I plug in an ethernet, or turn on wireless (the on off powersaver switch on the side) my computer locks up. As in no program will open. ctl+alt+delete. Nothing. Mouse moves, thats about it.

This is the second time I have reinstalled. Last time same thing, but I used the ethernet to DL all the drivers from Toshiba, and installed them, same outcome. I talked to a friend and he said to boot up in safe mode and look at the error log. I will do that in a second. Just wanted to get this posted then start working again.

I am very computer literate. So dont feel like you need to dumb down things to much.

Thanks guys!

Computer freezes when trying to access My Computer in any program


Could be a program running in background. Try to go to msconfig ( click on start, run, and type msconfig). On the startup items, disable all and reboot. See if the performance improves. If it does, enable startup program on msconfig one by one and reboot. to check what startup item is causing the slow performance. If it does not improve, might be an unnecessary driver for the system. Reinstall windows xp.

Hi niket_shah, sorry but you're board Asus M2N-MX, does support Win XP SP2.
Chances are that while installing windows updates one or more updates failed. People like myself know from repairing PC's which updates need to be installed first. If you're Win XP SP2 did not or would not install than either the Win CD is not a valid Microsoft Win XP SP2 CD or (You have a copy) & there is something wrong with the CD. After a fresh (New install) of Win XP with SP2 there is more than 90+ updates for SP2 which must be downloaded through windows update program. Or you're windows will not function properly.
Just to show you what versions of windows the M2N-MX board does support. Click the link listed below. Once the link loads click the + sign next to Audio. Scroll down the page an notice the different Window version listed for you're board.
http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?modelname=M2N-MX&SLanguage=en-us
To recap this issue. The problem is either the WinCD or possibly you're hard drive. Make sure you allow windows to perform a full format before installing window. (Not a quick format).
